Young Carers

At Lodestar Academy we are aware that some of our pupils are young carers – children under 18 who are caring unpaid for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. 

Young carers are a vulnerable and disadvantaged group who frequently experience difficulties in their education as a result of their caring role.

Our work to identify and support young carers has resulted in Lodestar Academy achieving the Young Carers in Schools bronze award.
